A graduate of the University of North Dakota, Cora Smith began her suffrage work in the state in 1887. She earned a medical degree at Boston University and was the first woman licensed to practice medicine in North Dakota in 1892. A trained orator, she advocated for suffrage before Congress and also worked in Minnesota for women's rights after moving there for her career in 1896. She re-located to Washington State in 1906 and became a pivotal figure in the Washington suffrage victory in 1910. She was a founding member of The Mountaineers and wrote widely about the topic as well as providing medical advice to climbers. After a second marriage to Judson King, she moved to Washington D.C. in 1912 and was an important national suffrage advocate. Dr. King also wrote the history of the Washington victory in 1910 for the "History of Woman Suffrage." She later moved to California where she was a leading homeopath before her death in 1939.
